As the Stars Twinkle in Essieterra (part 2)
I had been wishing to get away from the human world for the summer, and after much pondering, believing, and dreaming, I had perceived a phantasmagoric place called Essieterra. Here, mystical creatures dwelled, and passion propelled the dreams of young and old. It was all a matter of traveling there.
Destiny took care of that. One night, as I lay in bed, I suddenly disappeared and was transported to a dock. Then, the galleon arrived to take me to Essieterra. “All aboard!” Captain Carrot had shouted, waving cheerfully and clicking his hoofs as he walked about the ship. All along, I wanted Essieterra to be more than a figment of my imagination, so I took comfort in the face that there were others who deemed it to be just as real as I did.
Though I clearly stood out for being the only human on board, I didn’t mind. To me, fitting in didn’t matter—being accepted was what truly counted.
